This song brings the two together, and leads them into a battle beyond imagination which grips the whole world.
A mystery left behind by a lone researcher, monsters appearing across the globe, and a world dyed red.

A collaboration between Godzilla Singular Point and the Japanese boat race Boat Race Amagasaki was announced on January 20, 2021 with details to follow in February.[20] A "Godzilla Singular Point Cup" race was held from March 10 to 15.[21] An official website for the collaboration, br-amagasaki-godzilla-sp.jp, was launched on February 8[22] along with a short promotional video for the event. Various pieces of merchandise were available to those who spent over 1,000 yen in online voting, with more given out as part of a raffle for those who bet on the six winning racers.[23]
